Inventorthon (Space Hackathon)

It's not a Citizen Inventor event per se but one that is not to be missed! The Inventorthon:

This is a hackathon event at the Satellite Applications Catapult at Harwell - it has an exciting list of challenges ( for space tech and space application. That multiplies together with hands on hacking and some help on the business pitching side of things makes it just the event for inventors and Citizen Inventors alike! 

Come Along - don't forget your sleeping bag and worry not you will be well watered (with all sorts of beverages) and fed! Oh, and there are prizes to be won to:
